National Retrofitting Scheme: Statements (17 Feb 2022)

Chris Andrews: Everybody welcomes the package of supports as part of the delivery of Ireland’s residential retrofit programme but I suppose the devil is in the detail. As Deputy O’Rourke mentioned, the 80% scheme is very limited. We are effectively funding the well off in that we are giving wealthy people, in particular, 50% of their upgrade cost. Just like homeowners, those renting from...

Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (10 Feb 2022)

Chris Andrews: This is a technical Bill and I acknowledge the commitment and hard work the Minister of State puts into her brief. I know she shows huge empathy with the people she works with.

The aforementioned survey showed that nearly 90% of people staying in emergency...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Interim Report on Homelessness: Discussion (8 Feb 2022)

Chris Andrews: Is there no way to ensure that people who are in a chaotic addiction phase of their lives are not sharing a room with people who are making a serious effort to get clean? Obviously that scenario is not working for either party.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Interim Report on Homelessness: Discussion (8 Feb 2022)

Chris Andrews: On the issue of inter-county transfers, homelessness does not recognise boundaries.
